RAD Resident Meeting
Rental Assistance Demonstration Program
What is RAD?
The Rental Assistance Demonstration program enables Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to convert existing Public Housing to project-based Section 8
- Authorized by Congress in 2011 through the FY2012 Appropriations Act
- A key component of HUD’s rental housing preservation strategy
- Allows housing authorities to expand funding resources for rehabilitation of properties beyond what is provided by HUD
- Aimed at preserving long-term affordability, and improving funding for maintenance and improvements of current public housing properties
- Cost-neutral and does not increase HUD’s budget
Due to a recent change in HUD policy, the Housing Authority of Owensboro will soon be required to be smoke-free in and around all of its apartments, office buildings, community rooms, and common areas.
The goal of the new HUD policy is to reduce the harmful effects of second-hand smoke and to create a healthier environment for all residents.
The Housing Authority’s new Non-Smoking Policy will take effect July 1, 2017.
